Anyone for Yoga?
Step right up to Janelle Monáe’s Wondaland. The Eephus EP is the hotly anticipated first release from her landmark partnership with Epic Records, and features the cream of Monáe’s own Wondaland Records’ talent, including Jidenna, Roman GianArthur, Deep Cotton, and St. Beauty.
It’s an electrifying awakening of an otherwise stale, crass genre, pushing limits with vocal techniques, cleverly understated lyrics, exciting hooks and decidedly fresh and modern, yet avant-garde fun. The EP, released August 14th, contains lead single ‘Classic Man’ by Jidenna featuring Roman GianArthur, as well as new single ‘Yoga’ by Janelle Monáe featuring Jidenna.
Jidenna is easily one of the year’s most exciting breakthrough artists, and casts a striking figure in his tailored suits and cane – a swagger that clever flows into his catchy hooks.
“I’m so thrilled to share Wondaland Records with the world. Each artist under Wondaland Records has unparalleled talent, incredible vision, and brings something unique to the music industry.” – Janelle Monáe.
The Wonderland Records crew is currently touring the States doing a series of secret shows, finishing on 31 August, 2015.
